New Caledonia has for many years been on my ”bucket list” of places to go. They have a fair amount of endemic birds, about 22, plus 3 possibly extinct species. Of the possible ones, I saw all but missed the photo on two. I traveled on my own, slept in my rental Kia for 5 nights and two on the hostel in Noumea. My wife Anita, who had accompanied me to Vanuatu, Fiji and Samoa, traveled on with a friend to Tonga. She had been already to NC many years ago.
